Johnny Depp Loses Libel Case Against The Sun Newspaper

New York: Hollywood actor Jhonny Depp has lost the libel case against Britain’s  The Sun newspaper which claimed that he was an abusive husband.

Depp has sued News Group Newspapers and the executive editor of The Sun-Dan Wootton for an article that claimed the “Pirates Of The Caribbean star was violent toward his wife Amber Heard while they were together.”

However, the High Court of the United Kingdom has cited its decision against Depp.

The lawyers for the newspaper group argued in the court with evidence including the photos, audio recordings and the text messages by Depp which proved that he “beat his wife Amber Heard, causing her to suffer significant injury, and on occasion leading to her fearing for her life,” as quoted by CNN.

Justice Andrew Nicol who headed the lawsuit said, “I have reached these conclusions having examined in detail the 14 incidents on which the defendants rely, as well as the over-arching considerations which the claimant submitted I should take into account.”

On the other side, Depp has admitted that he had long-term problems with drugs and alcohol during the trial but the claims made by the newspaper were completely untrue.

Heard also told the court that Depp wanted to kill her “many times”.

In a written statement to the court she said, “When Johnny puts his attention on you, with all his intensity and darkness, it is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.”

“Some incidents were so severe that I was afraid he was going to kill me, either intentionally or just by losing control and going too far. He explicitly threatened to kill me many times, especially later in our relationship,” Heard told the court, according to the UK’s PA Media news agency.

The Sun is owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. It said in a statement after the verdict, “The Sun has stood up and campaigned for the victims of domestic abuse for over 20 years. Domestic abuse victims must never be silenced and we thank the judge for his careful consideration and thank Amber Heard for her courage in giving evidence to the court.”
